Wondering what to do in Singapore? We’ll show you all the iconic sights on your Singapore tour, from the marvellous Marina Bay to the buzzing streets of Little India and Chinatown.
Discover Little India & Chinatown
You won’t know where to look first when we step onto the streets of Little India, and we’ll lead the charge through the lively streets lined with colourful buildings, unique spices and shops full of treasures. Meanwhile, ancient Chinatown is the place to go for traditional temples, historic buildings and mouthwatering markets filled with tasty treats.
Walk Along Marina Bay
You could spend a whole day exploring Marina Bay and we’ll give you a taste of all the highlights on a Singapore sightseeing tour. Our first stop is the incredible Gardens by the Bay where you can marvel at a Flower Dome filled with exotic plants and a 35-metre indoor waterfall in the Cloud Forest. It doesn't get more spectacular than this!
Enjoy a Stroll Through Merlion Park
Come and snap a selfie with the legendary Merlion of Singapore. This iconic statue of a mythical half-fish, half-lion creature stands at 8.6 metres tall and weighs 70 tonnes and spouts water out of its mouth into Marina Bay. You can also see the smaller Merlion statue known as the Merlion cub. Too cute!

WHAT TO EAT & DRINK IN SINGAPORE
Wondering what to eat and where to eat in Singapore? We’ve got you covered with all the hot tips on where to find the best Singapore food, from zesty curries to fresh seafood.
It doesn’t get more classic than nasi lemak in Singapore! This flavour-packed dish takes rice cooked with coconut milk and pandan leaf and serves it up with spicy sambal and all kinds of sides like beef, chicken curry, eggs, cucumber and fried anchovies. Put it all together and you’ve got one delicious meal.
What would a trip to Singapore be without a big plate of chilli crab? Despite its name, this isn’t a super hot dish, and the crab is stir-fried in a thick tomato-and-chilli sauce that’s usually more sweet than spicy. Eating chilli crab is a messy yet delicious business, so roll up your sleeves, grab some crab crackers and a bib, and dig in!
What to have an authentic breakfast on your Singapore trip? You can’t miss kaya toast, a dish of toasted bread filled with butter and kaya, a jam made from sugar, eggs, pandan leaves and coconut milk. It’s one of the country’s favourite dishes and the best news? You can find it almost everywhere.

Singapore may just be one of the cleanest countries in the world - and they want to keep it that way! Make sure you never drop any rubbish and if you smoke, only do it in clearly marked areas.
Shop and Eat Local
The best way to support the local communities is to eat at local restaurants and buy local. You’ll not only feel good for supporting communities, but you'll also pick up some gorgeous handmade treasures!
Say No to Plastic
